Working on fix for context menus

Wanted folks to know that we are actively working on a fix for the context menus (to the far right of each task) so that they actually work on IE8, and stop slowing things down on all other browsers.

For the technically inclined: the hierarchical menu jquery plugin currently in place works great if you only have a handful of tasks, but starts to really drag its feet as the number of tasks grows.  Think we found an alternative that doesn’t exhibit this behavior.  With any luck it won’t be too involved to swap out the old menus for the new.

UX Experimentation for Upcoming Features

Been working all weekend (yes, wife and son are out of town) on some engineering and UX challenges that have been holding up the works for Areas of Responsibility and Smart Lists.  I’m quite happy with where things are going.

Adding new features without cluttering up the interface (or confusing non-power users) is always a challenge, but I think this shows promise.
